Regal Cinema

Unknown Mami hosts Sundays in My City where people from around the globe show photos of their city. It's such a fun way to see places you may never get to visit and to also enjoy some things that only a local might notice.

In my case, if you were to drive down Phillips Hwy past the Regal Cinemas, you would not miss it! However, my husband, who has crisscrossed Jacksonville 100 times had never seen this building. It was exciting to show him something that I had found.

You can click this photo to enlarge and please do because this is just truly beautiful.  It reminds me of a Las Vegas showgirl feathered headpiece!

I was so excited to finally photograph this beautiful building, but I knew it was going to be an incredible sight once it got dark.

So I went back that evening, before I had too many things on my mind and forgot about it.  I'm so glad I went back!!  It was so bright and beautiful, the parking lot was packed, kids were hanging out, out front having a nice time and parents were lined up waiting for their kids to get out of the movie.

I wasn't sure what the neighborhood was like at night so I asked my husband to go with me.  He sat in the car.  He didn't think it was as thrilling as I did, but when I got back to the car he asked if I had gotten "that shot from over there" and "that shot from under there."  I knew he was interested!

I think this one would make a great card.  I'm going to be sure and make a few of these and put them in my Etsy shop.

Perfect shots! The colors are great! And you are right, makes me think of a Vegas show girls feather hat!
